Washington DC, USA

Ah, The District. DC is divided into quadrants: NW, NE, SW, and SE. NW is the busiest, safest area, dense with residences, embassies, restaurants, monuments, offices, universities, and government buildings.  I spent three years living in NW DC and I still visit once a month as many of my friends couldn't bare to part with the place after graduation.

 

 

 

 

 

Some popular areas in NW DC are:

  • Georgetown

  • The National Mall

  • Capitol Hill

  • 14th St. / U St. Corridor

  • Adams Morgan

  • DuPont Circle

  • Logan Circle

  • Foggy Bottom

  • West End

  • Penn Quarter

  • Palisades / Chevy Chase

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Accommodation:

 

 

 

 

Activities:

  • Go shopping on M St. The neighborhood is so quaint and the shops always have something good. For bargin hunters, pop into Marshalls. Half the store is dedicated to selling top name brands, though probably from last season. Find yourself a great deal!

  • If you're active, run through the Georgetown Waterfront to Roosevelt Island.

  • Pack a picnic and bike to the park to watch the planes land at Reagan Airport. I love travelling, so this kind of fulfilled my need to escape when I had to stay put at university!
